How Do I Choose the Best Bespoke Wedding Stationery?

Kristie Lorette

Bespoke wedding stationery is another term for custom-made wedding stationery. In order to choose the best bespoke wedding stationery, you should consider the style or design you are looking for and the invitation makers that have a style that fits your needs. Since this type of stationery, which includes wedding invitations, response cards, thank you cards and more, are not manufactured in bulk, you may not know exactly how the stationery will turn out. You should consider the experience of the invitation maker, the price of the stationery, the time frame for creating the stationery and any of the additional pieces you may need to complete your order.

Style or design is probably the primary factor in choosing the best bespoke wedding stationery. If you are looking for a modern design, then you should try to find stationers that custom-make modern stationery. If you want a traditional look and feel for your wedding invitations and supplemental stationery, then you should narrow down your options to the stationers that create traditional pieces. Determining the style of your wedding first will help you choose from the many different types of stationery, which include letterpress, handwritten, engraved and printed.

The experience the stationer has creating custom-made wedding invitations and matching stationery is another matter of importance. You should specifically find creators that specialize in custom-made wedding stationery as opposed to general or personal stationery. A comprehensive portfolio of work will reflect the stationer's experience, taste and abilities. You may also gain inspiration for your own design by looking at examples of his previous work.

Custom-made stationery is typically more expensive than wedding invitations and stationery that are printed and mass produced. Price, therefore, is another deciding factor on which is the best bespoke wedding stationery for your event. Keep in mind that the more intricate the design or the more embellishments you add to the design, the higher the price tends to be because each invitation is labor intensive.

You can also narrow down your bespoke wedding stationery options by the amount of time you have until you need to send the invitations out to invited guests. If you are short on time, then you may need to work with a stationer that can produce the custom-made invitations faster than another, and therefore this is the best stationer for you to work with for your wedding.

Since wedding invitations are not the only stationery you will likely need, you can also narrow down your options by determining the additional pieces the stationer can create for you. In addition to stationery, some bespoke invitation creators can also provide bespoke wedding favors, wedding programs, guest books and more. In the end, the stationer that can meet all of your needs and wants is the best one for you.
